Women’s Sex Strike (Lysistrata)

posted in: Past Productions, Theatre | 0

In coproduction with ARTSpoken Performing Arts Center of Miami


A comic account of women’s extraordinary mission to end existing conflict by denying all the men of the land any sex, which was the only thing they truly and deeply desired. The women of Greece decide  to withhold sexual privileges from their husbands and lovers as a means of forcing the men to negotiate peace —a strategy, however, that inflames the battle between the sexes.
